​ Shaw, C., Blakely, T., Sarfati, D., Fawcett, J., & Hill, S.

15 April, 2005

Tobacco use and resultant health effects have been described as an epidemic that progresses through the population. This paper aimed to describe and explain trends in lung cancer mortality by ethnicity and socioeconomic position in New Zealand between 1981–1999. The authors concluded that there are significant and growing ethnic and socioeconomic inequalities in lung cancer mortality in New Zealand. In the current absence of concerted public health action these inequalities will probably widen in future decades.
